St. Paul the Apostle Wheelchair Sunday

Father John, Father Lucas and Brother Knights,

St. Paul the Apostle Council #12021 in Richardson, and the Dallas Diocese, held a successful 2nd Annual Wheelchair Sunday over the weekend. Including the $853 received before the weekend, they raised $9,084 for 60 wheelchairs.

Since it is estimated that each wheelchair delivered changes and improves an average of 10 lives, 600 lives will be impacted. Their funds will go towards providing a large container of 280 wheelchairs for the Veracruz CRIT Center in Mexico.

There were 5 Our Lady of Guadalupe lithographs given out to donors of $500 or more.

Thank you so much to Fr. John Szatkowski and Fr. Lucas Moreira de Sales for their wonderful support of this mission and to Brother David Roberson for coordinating the event and helping at all 6 Masses. Thanks also to the other Brother Knights that helped, especially Brother Bill Eldridge. And thank you to the St. Paul the Apostle parishioners for their kindness and generosity and for being guardian angels to children in need of wheelchairs.

God bless all of you.
